Wine and paint night for J—’s birthday on Friday, back-to-back wedding receptions on Saturday and Sunday, punctuated by this morning’s staff meeting at the hospital (which was interrupted a few times by multiple flash flood alerts going off in synchrony).

In trying to be more present for the friends we were celebrating, I didn’t take a lot of pictures. I also missed a location checkin last night, which annoys me, not gonna lie. But my focus is on getting back to the habits I’ve been working to build during these early weeks of 2024. Today offers a good chance to catch up on my first book of the year, for one. And I hope to fit in some treadmill time as well.
